    Tell them you get it via their mom. As payment for your services.

    On every country there are different laws. But remember always this:" Be good to your AM, like your friend."

    You definitely got a Account Manager from your Bank. Go to him/her every month or so and ask what you can do with your money or some bullshitt. Meanwhile ask him about
    his personal life and so on. What he did with his money when he was young. Do something that he remembers you. After you are close ,he could back your asss if something comes up.
    On some EU states/or all (don't know) the bank provides the infos to the financial government. So if they find somehing suspicous they will either call the FG asap or if you are close with your AM, they will first call you and ask where the money comes from. ;)

    PS: Remember that your AM will always try to sign you up on some credit cards/savings book or what they are called. Because they need to keep a ratio every week.

    Change banks. US bank tried pulling that with me, and I simply moved to another bank. It isn't anyone's business where your income is coming from (as long as it's legal obv).

    That's right, change banks. I had this happen with adult friend finder and scotiabank. They would hold cheques for weeks. Then after switching to wire transfers, they asked me to come in and do a interview so they could make sure Im not laundering money..

    Switched banks. Same banking volume, no issues.

    My bank in the UK has asked me this too, in the UK they still havent got a clue about internet earnings,

    Not being big headed but the certain month's amount (I had done really really well & worked very hard) was maybe more than the woman behind the phone was earning in a year, so she asked maybe wanting to know herself (very unprofessional) I simply told her that i promote websites online to big companies and she asked no further questions.

    Weeks later, i was invited into the branch to discuss the % rate i was getting on my savings, banks rarely care here as long as your earning.

    I believe Britain is recovering from a tripple dip recession they are possibly happy the money's coming into their hands.

    Because of money laundering issues. All UK banks have the right by law to ask questions if they are unsure of the origin of deposited money over £10,000.
